Kongai League is an event organised by few Kongai veterans: Shadowinfinity, Zakid, Ooooog and BlazinrobotsInc. The idea behind the league was to make a tournament for experienced, high-ranked players exclusively. The concept met big support from both members of Kongai community and Kongregate staff. The games started in April and are planned to be finished by the end of June. So far, it has been the biggest Kongai competition ever organised and future editions are to be expected.
Over 60 players decided to enter the competition. They were divided into two groups: League A and League B (about 30 players each). Games were played in a round robin system - a certain player would receive 2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie and 0 for a loss. However, as it turned out to be impossible for the participants to get the matches done, an alternative way of ranking the players was coined:
Score=(Points/Games)*(1+0.01*Neustadl), for players with more than 15 games
Score=(Points/Games)*(1+0.006*Neustadl), for players with less than 15 games
12 players advanced from each group. 24 players met in playoffs (8 byes for participants from positions 1-4). The first round was played in Bo3 (best out of 3) mode, 1/8 and quarterfinals in Bo5, semifinals, finals and the 3rd place game in Bo7.
